How to Reset Windows 8 Password Easily? For Computer Newbie?

"Windows 8 password reset help? I have a home PC running Windows 8, which has two accounts: one limited account with a password can just log into and the original admin account that has no log in password. My father set this account as the one with admin privileges but forgot the administrator password, I can't reset it with cmd.exe, I've tried several commands looking for a way to clear the password, but all of them doesn't work"

I get a quick response after asking help from my IT friends, . He told me that there is a Windows 8 password reset disk that will allow me to reset password on Windows 8. However, I am just a computer newbie and not a computer expert; I just need a more easy way! Then I wonder if whether there is a program without a boot disk or not? It would be much easier for me but thanks anyways!

What a pity things is that another friends answered my question:
Not really, most Windows 8 password recovery requires a boot disk, unless the main Windows 8 admin account is not password protected. Try accessing it by pressing f8 during boot and entering safe mode. Once asks for login, press ctrl-alt-del, and type in administrator. This might work. While, I have only one administrator account - the default admin!

At last, I had to search my password question from Google, what's surprised me is that here is one site that might help me. It is named Windows Password Recovery Toolwindowspasswordsrecovery.com) that will work for any Windows OS, also include Windows 8.
